Portrait of Norm

This is the entire portrait—the face that belongs with the teeth in my tutorial.  (I’m posting this with permission from the client.)

This was a difficult portrait, but ultimately one that gave me great joy. The subject has been ill, and my job was to see through the illness to the warm, sparkling man underneath. Sometimes a painted portrait can capture something that the best camera can not. I was very pleased to present this to the family.
